Ashley's Wonderful Whatnot ~ Cracked Vase rehab

Hi all! My Wonderful Whatnot for the day is my cracked Hobby Lobby vase! I watched Whitney’s kid’s while she ran to Hobby Lobby. She promised to bring me back something shanty and she did just that! She came home with a metal/glass vase that had a huge piece missing…fortunately for me she still had the piece that broke off. She purchased it for $5!!!! I super glued the piece back in place, painted it with the Antique White Acrylic and Glazed it with the Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze (of course). I then found a box of cute little green apples for $6 at Home Goods and voila! I placed it on the top of my hutch (crack to the back of course) and I just love how the green stands out! Enjoy!











I will be posting this at The inspired room for Fall Nesting at http://theinspiredroom.net/2009/09/01/get-inspired-for-fall-fall-nesting-2009/ Check it out and be inspired!

If you can't see the crack, it's not really there :) I wish I had a shopping partner in crime too! The apples set the white off nicely! Good job!

Looks great! I have quite a few cracked or flawed things around my house, too, but who cares if you can't see it? :) I love the green apples!

It looks so much better! I do that all of the time. I can't see throwing something away that I know that I can fix even if I have to put the broken or chipped side to the back! LOL

I love it! Who cares if it has a crack as long as you can display it at the back?

Love it!
I actually bought some broken things at Hobby Lobby this weekend - with the cracks to the back no one knows my secret!
